When I was last in Dubai I kept hearing and reading reviews of a Circle cafe. The reviews raved about the lovely interior and really distinguished food. One morning as we were driving down Jumeirah Road we saw Circle Cafe and decided to stop for breakfast.
For a while now I kept hearing raving reviews about a Jones the Grocer, an Australian franchise restaurant/deli/gourmet grocery shop that’s recently opened up in Dubai. I’ve seen pictures and read the reviews and could tell it was an excellent popular place that I’d love to visit. Therefore when I was in Dubai I made […]
There is something magical about Arabian calligraphy, I’ve always stopped and admired a beautifully written letter in Arabic for as long as I could remember, and there are many different fonts, each spectacular in it’s own way. When I was last in Dubai I was walking around in Dubai Mall when I saw a spectacular […]
Each time I’m in Dubai there must be a list of newly opened places I’ve never been before to explore. On the top of my list was The Farm restaurant recommended by many people I know, doing so while gushing about the breathtaking scenery and the amazing food. Since I was there for the Eid […]
Just before the Eid holiday I received a lovely Eidiya from the lovely Lamya Al-Farsi, the owner of Lamy’s Perfumes, a local perfume making business. I’ve had the pleasure to meet Lamya a while back in a perfume exhibition where she mixed perfumes from different scents on the spot (post). Lamy’s perfumes are well known […]
Since the holy month of Ramadan and Eid days are now over I’m trying to get into my normal daily life routine, plus going on a diet to control my appetite after the daily feasts of the past few weeks. I have been doing very good, only my friends who I haven’t been out with […]
This post is to remember the very last day of Ramadan 1434 and the first days of eid I’ve spend in Dubai in 2013. Dubai was quite busy as usual, hot and humid during August for sure, but the festive mood was indeed in the air with Ramadan decorations and eid celebrations.
I’ve seen the trailer for this movie a while back and I knew it was one movie I really wanted to watch. Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are two salesmen who lose their jobs and they look everywhere but can only, and miraculously, secure an internship at the one and only Google. Having to compete […]
For the last iftar meal I’ve had in the holy month of Ramadan in 2013, I was surprised by Al-Berdawny Palace Lebanese restaurant. Five minutes before iftar time the most beautiful Eidiya ever was delivered to my iftar table. Eidiya is the

That’s why the blog was neglected, I was in my favorite city in the world for two weeks. I thought I’d share some of my favorite summer 2012 London trip pictures during which the
We were invited last week to attend a sneak preview of the newest IMAX 3D movie in The Scientific Center, To The Arctic.
As a vegetarian I don’t particularly enjoy sheep and meat based lunches. I’ve never liked mechabees o qowazee or their smell so I avoid them like the plaque. Also I am a breakfast person and I sleep in during the Eid so its always breakfast that’s the highlight of my Eid day! My breakfast yesterday […]
Yesterday was a gloomy day. I was blue and sniffing and sad when I was asked if I had ordered a cake? I hadn’t and the driver had already dropped the cake off and left so I went to see the
Good Saturday morning, or well, afternoon but its a Saturday in a long weekend and i guess many have decided to sleep in and just woke up like me. What are you having for breakfast? I am craving a continental one: Croissants, soft bread, butter, and jam with a cup of strong good coffee. This […]
